Fellow endo sisters Laurie, Jenn, and Leigh have created a new in-person support group called the Ottawa Endometriosis Support Association!
From their website:
The OESA meets approximately once a month in a women only setting to offer support in a peer environment. We do not offer medical advice or act as a referral service for treatment. Our members meet to share their struggles and triumphs with a disease that often causes social isolation.
The members of the OESA acknowledge that our friends and family are also greatly impacted by their loved one’s struggles with endometriosis so from time to time we do host open events in a social setting where friends and family can feel comfortable to mingle and get to know other people who have had endometriosis touch their lives.
The OESA’s members are diverse in cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, we strive to maintain a positive environment for our members and encourage them to stay informed and to advocate for themselves and their health care.
